    Cobra Kai

    Daniel's not the villain in the show. He's kinda the same as he was in the first movie- a mostly well-intentioned guy who's a successful businessman, and loving husband and father. He's just got a bit of a temper and can be self righteous and smug at times. Johnny's turned into an alcoholic deadbeat dad asshole who slowly redeems himself over the course of the show. His brand of toxic masculinity is actually helpful for the 'losers' who join his dojo, but it goes too far towards the end and even he realizes it. I guess that's a spoiler, but the major plot points and character beats are fairly well telegraphed.

    Donald Glover's Atlanta on FX

    That was hilarious. As was black Justin Beiber.

    On my iphone 6 safari, I get redirected to some ad site when I try to browse the forums.

    The Magicians - SyFy [SHOW SPOILERS ONLY]

    Is it just me, or did Quentin get a lot more jittery and nervous after the pilot?

    The Magicians - SyFy [SHOW SPOILERS ONLY]

    I think they made Quentin more sympathetic by explicitly giving him a depression diagnosis instead of leaving it to be inferred by the reader. They also softened his actions a bit. I I remember that he was much more callous towards Julia when she tried showing him the spell she learned online.

    There seems to be a prejudice against "genre" or "nerd" stuff in TV, especially that evokes, elves, wizards or Dungeons and Dragons. I'm not sure how strong that is anymore, with the ubiquity of comic book movies and tv shows

    WHEEL OF TIME officially optioned for television

    I'm not sure the success of Game of Thrones will entail a successful WoT adaptation. A lot of the appeal of GoT for mainstream audiences was that there wasn't very much magic (there is now; we nerds bait and switched 'em!) and was a cross between The Sopranos or The Wire and Lord of the Rings. WoT on the other hand has a very traditional story structure and a lot of flashy magic right from the beginning. Obviously, the success of LoTR means that something like that can be successful, but I imagine there's a larger barrier to hurdle for mainstream success in a TV show, not to mention it would be more expensive than most expensive television show ever made.

    I loved River of Stars. One touch I liked was the obituaries for minor characters. and also:

    [Book Spoilers] Ep 202 Discussion

    I hated the actress playing Yara/Asha. She had the right look, but she was a bad actress. She sounded flat and false.
